What is pure water and how does it help commercial window cleaning?
Pure water is a popular choice for many window cleaners currently, as it is a reliable and effective alternative to chemical-filled solutions. It's not just water – it is deionised water that has been treated to remove any impurities (e.g. dissolved solids that may contaminate the water), in order to produce a more spotless clean.
Simple household tap water is often full of minerals and dissolved solid particles, which can make it difficult to achieve a flawless shine on your windows, so the water is purified to get rid of these unwanted substances.
Pure Water Keeps Dirt At Bay
By the time pure water is used on your windows, it is free from dirt, chemicals and minerals. It is the residue caused by impurities and detergents that attracts grime to the glass in the first place; so, by using pure water, you can ensure that your windows will stay cleaner for longer, without a soapy film attracting dirt and gunk to the glass.
Water-Fed Pole System
Water-fed poles are designed to be used with pure water, as no detergent or chemical residue needs to be rinsed off (something that would be tricky with an extendable pole).
The pure water is pumped upwards through the pole, and out onto the window. The pole has a specially designed brush at the end; as the brush loosens the dirt and grime, the pure water washes it away. The system enables window cleaners to reach the top windows on a property, without requiring equipment like abseil systems, access cradles or cherry pickers.
Your Windows Will Be Streak-, Smear- And Smudge-Free!
Once your windows have been cleaned with a water-fed pole and pure water, they are left to dry naturally, as there is no soapy residue or water impurities that could form unsightly smears on the newly washed glass. Letting the windows dry by themselves also means that contaminating particles cannot be transferred from the material used to dry the glass.
An Environmentally Friendly Option
Because of the absence of chemical fluids and cleaning detergents, pure water is an eco-friendly option for your window cleaning. As well as achieving better results for your windows, using pure water means that you don’t have to worry about things like the cleaning water splashing onto your plants or the brickwork of your property.
